Planning Permission Granted at Wilmington Academy

We are delighted that permission has been granted for a new teaching block at Wilmington Academy after two years of working with Kent County Council and the local grammar schools to address the legitimate concerns of local residents over traffic and parking. Wilmington Academy changed its school day, installed another bus lane and enhanced an existing path to the rear of the site, to make the area safer for all concerned.

The new building will help to provide much needed school places within the community and construction will commence in earnest later this summer. We were also given permission to create 42 new parking spaces and to install 3 more temporary classrooms to accommodate the extra students we have already taken.
